    Recent File List

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List" -name file1

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List" -name file2
    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List" -name file9
    ...

    you get the idea. ( too lazy to put it in a for loop and test it.

    or just open regedit and remove all the fileX from that key.
     
  3. How can I guarantee Windows defender is working optimally, recover missing files and further secure my data? Help urgently needed!

    I performed a full system (Windows 10) scan using Windows defender and Windows defender detected some malware. I tried to view the report of the list of malware found and Windows defender application keeps closing unexpectedly, and keeps doing same each time I try to view the list or try to take an action. I used Norton Antivirus plus to scan my system again and after the scan it reported that eight (8) issues were discovered and resolved. However, I still noticed Windows defender displaying list of malware requiring action and when I try to view the list, window defender closed unexpectedly. Now some files are also missing from my desktop and I want my system to respond optimally (as it is slow). What could be the problems and what steps can I take to secure my system, recover missing desktop files and keep my files safe? Anyone to help, your suggestions and advice is urgently needed please? Thank you for your help!
